Three minutes later Jones battled his way through several tackles only to see his strike saved comfortably by Lennox. On the half hour, following a series of corner kicks to the home side, a partially cleared corner was headed goal wards by Forbes, but keeper Allison was well placed to save. In the 38th minute, Penicuik came close when a Lough strike went narrowly wide of the target. Immediately afterwards, Penicuik scored completely against the run of play. Hume picked out Forbes on the right wing with an inch perfect pass and his first time cross was slotted home by LOUGH. In the 41st minute Penicuik had Young to thank when a high ball caught out the Penicuik defence, but some excellent work by the defender averted the danger. Half time: Dundonald 0 Penicuik 1 In the opening minutes of the second half, Dundonald had a shot cleared off the goal line, swiftly followed by a strike that drifted narrowly wide of the goal. In the 63rd minute, a break up the left wing brought Allison into action cutting out a dangerous cross. Penicuik were gradually getting into the game with Dundonald continuing to be ineffective in the last third of the pitch. Then in the 84th minute, an excellent interception by Forbes saw him get to the goal line, cross the ball and substitute KATELEZA had the simple task of tapping the ball into the net. Three minutes later, Barr battled to win the ball on the edge of the box and MacDONALD drilled the ball into the bottom corner of the net. Then Dundonald were awarded a penalty in the 88th minute when keeper Allison collided with Lawrie and Allison was red carded. MOFFAT converted the spot kick sending stand-in keeper Forbes the wrong way. Full time: Dundonald 1 Penicuik 3
